  • What Age is Required to Operate a Canberra Rental Vehicle?

    The minimum age to hire a car varies depending on the rental car company. Most companies need drivers to be at least 21 years old. But others accept 18-year-old drivers with certain terms.

    If you are below 21 years, you may have to pay a rental fee. Ensure you review the conditions and policies of the rental car agency for clarification.

  • What Kind of License is Required to Hire a Vehicle?

    To hire a car, you typically need to have a full, authorized driver's license. Some car rental companies will accept limited driving licenses that have been in possession for more than a year. But they always have restrictions on how you can drive.

    If your license is from another nation, you may require a worldwide driver's license. You must have both domestic and international driving licenses with you. Your driver's license must also be in English.

    In case it's not, you will require an official translated version of your foreign driver's license.

  • Does Car Size Matter When Hiring?

    Size is a consideration when renting a car. The size of the vehicle you choose will depend on the number of passengers on the trip. Ensure the size of the car matches the number of passengers for more comfort.

    For example, if you are traveling with a spouse and about 2 children, you may need a vehicle with four seats for added comfort. In case family or friends are tagging along, a bigger car should be a priority. Our car hire Canberra are classified by size, including:

    Economy: Two adults and two children

    Mid-Size: Four adults and one child

    SUV: Five adults

    Electric and Hybrid: Two adults and two children

  • What Do I Do If I Have a Car Crash?

    Did you get into an accident in your car rental? Follow the steps below.

    To avoid more collisions, move the car to a secure area

    Help all harmed parties

    Inform the police about the car crash

    Obtain the other party's information

    Get in touch with our customer care

    Never agree to a private settlement right away because it may void the auto rental insurance

  • What Should I Bring With Me When Picking Up the Car?

    When renting a car in Canberra, you must have a valid driver's license, a passport, and a form of payment. The preferred form of payment is a credit card.

    When paying with cash, ensure you have another form of identification aside from the license and passport like your residency card, a health insurance card, a seal registration certificate, etc.

    Can My Canberra Car Rental Reservation Be Extended?

    Your car rental reservation can be extended easily. When requesting to prolong your car rental services, you must include your rental contract number. If you want to continue receiving the service, call the business directly.

    What Should I Consider While Giving the Car Back?

    Check the car to make sure you haven't left any personal belongings inside. Any misplaced property is not the company's responsibility. Ensure the car is tidy when bringing it back.

    In most instances, you will have received a car filled with diesel or petrol. It is a requirement to return it with the same amount of fuel. Fill it with the required fuel to avoid damage to the engine and incurring expensive repair costs.

    A fee will be imposed if you don't return the car with all the fuel in it. This may be a fixed price in addition to the cost of the gasoline required or it may be a fee per liter.

    What are the Mileage Limits to How Far I Can Go?

    The majority of rental agreements don't have any limitations on how far you may go or permit unlimited mileage. But it isn't always the case. There may be a kilometer cap on extremely brief rentals.

    This means the distance traveled from the site of pickup, across states, or between islands may occasionally be limited. Check to see if there are any limitations in your rental agreement. In case you're unsure, check with your rental company before you hire.

    Can You Bring the Car to the Airport?

    Canberra airport car hire is set in that you can be picked up by our personnel at rental locations that are located a distance from airports.

    Alternatively, the car can be brought for you at the airport. Communicate your needs when making a reservation for an easier transition when you land.

    Are There Cancellation Charges?

    Cancellation policy varies from one company to another. The amount of advance notice you give for the cancellation also matters. Up to a specific time frame stated in the contract by the company, you can get a full refund.

    What If There is a Complaint About the Hire?

    Speak to the car rental company first about your complaint since both of you are in a contract agreement together.

    If your expectations are not reached, the perfect time to voice them is either when you are picking up the car or when returning it. You can also send an email with the complaint as this is considered to be taken more seriously.
